Winter in Maine can be pretty harsh. Lack of sunlight, piles of snow and below freezing temperatures make life hard for plants. While it might be difficult for plants to survive outdoors, it doesn’t mean you cannot liven up your indoor living space with fresh greenery and colorful flowers.
Are you curious to find out which plants can thrive in an indoor setting during winter? Well, you’re in the right place. Here are some plants you can keep in any corner of your home to enjoy year-around perks without feeling the need to buy winter-specific plants.
Cacti are the subset of succulents and have properties to store water in roots, leaves and stems. The fleshy plants are more adjustable to the cold than any other plant of this type; hence, seating them in a pot can be an excellent planting idea. Adding them at any place in your home will give an exotic touch. You can try keeping mini cacti on your work table. These plants need to be watered once in a while and they can survive with only a few hours of exposure to direct sunlight during winter.
2) Pine Tree
Potted pines can be brought inside for several weeks at freezing temperature for decor purposes, so you adore the daily dose of aroma paddling around your home. You can add one or more small pine trees to any corner of your home.
Winterberries are the iconic winter plants that will add a charm to your house giving your space an exotic feel. They can be used for decor and can add cool colors to your living room. Try placing a mini winterberry plant somewhere in your kitchen. We recommend you provide them with sunlight for at least four hours daily.
4) Snake Plant
The plant with the best chance of survival in winters is the Snake Plant. Place it at the entrance of your house to add an elegant touch to it. You don’t have to worry about watering it daily. You can even ignore it for a week under the shade in any corner and its long straight leaves will still remain fresh.
5) Poinsettia or Christmas Flower
Poinsettia or Christmas flowers are the top sellers during the winter months. Associated with a pine-like terpenic scent, they only need a maximum of six hours of indirect sunlight each day. Christmas Flowers come in various colors giving a cozy vibe to your home.
No matter which of the above-mentioned plants you choose to beautify your indoor setting this winter, they will surely brighten up your space with minimal care and management.
